I’m not completely sure why I’m already posting this, but I decided to try out a copy of BuddyPress. If it works out I might just give everyone a chance to host a blog here for free which includes BuddyPress on top of that.
I’m in the process of testing all of this out on a new host and will try to have a complete tutorial finished within the week.
I’m actually ranking far to high in Google, specifically for BuddyPress related posts. I would like to give the visitors something that can help them. So, if you have any tutorials you would like me to list feel free to do so.
Here’s a few tutorials I would recommend:
